I hope everyone had a great first day! The first week is the easiest as the excitement is contagious. Get as many words as you can down during this time. Good luck on day 2!
Tami's day 1 word count: 107 words on Lost and Found, 950 on Parlor= 1,058
Tami's July word count: 1,058
Overall word count: 1,908 (for Parlor. Won't really track Lost and Found for overall since I'm almost done with revisions).
Cups of coffee drank: 2
Music: Death Cab and also watched the NHL free agent tracking.
Mindset: Today was a little tough for me. I had 50 pages to flip through of Lost and Found with my husband's notes (luckily nothing serious) and was distracted by NHL free agency today. Beyond that, I hadn't touched Parlor, my new WIP, for quite some time. I have a bit of catching up to do in terms of getting the story back in my head. Alas, I hit my goal...but it was a struggle the whole way.
How'd you do on Canada Day, Tracy?
Tracy's day 1 word count: 1039 words for Losing It, 2323 for Witch's Shadow
Tracy's July word count: 3362
Overall word count: LI now at: 32 115, WS now at: 8314
Cups of coffee drank: 2 pots! (although a few cups went cold - and those were the best ones, too.)
Music: Found this cool free internet radio station: http://music.aol.com/radioguide/alternative-radio I bounced around from alternative '00s to alternative '90s - discovered some new bands (well, new to me).
Mindset: July 1st, despite being Canada Day, was very productive - up until about 6pm - then it was all beach and beer and watching the fireworks from our front step. But I was thrilled with my word count - it was a great way to start the challenge. And I KNOW I probably won't hit those numbers again....lol....
Day 2 begins, and from the numbers people posted last night, we're all keen - let's see if we can keep our energy up all month! Go us!
